A true DFW suburban find are the many community pools that are scattered around the metroplex. These pools are perfect for families with young children who aren’t ready to brave the larger waterparks for summer entertainment.
One of my favorites is the Roanoke Community Pool. It is situated next to the Roanoke library, community center, ball fields and one of the nicest play areas around.
She Is Dallas Info: The Roanoke Community Pool is located at 416 S. Walnut in Roanoke. It is open 11 am to 7 pm Tuesday through Friday, Saturday 10 to 7 and Sunday 1 to 7. The pool is closed on Mondays. For more information, please check out the Roanoke Community Pool website.
The pool and splash area are smaller than some, but it is usually not crowded and…
YOU CAN SEE YOUR CHILD FROM ALMOST ANY POINT.
It was the first pool I felt comfortable taking all three of my boys without additional help. The pool, slide and beach area are heavily life-guarded. The deepest area in the pool is around 4 feet, but there is a large beach entry area for non-swimmers.
There is a larger waterslide for kids that can swim and the little boat pictured above has a small slide for the toddler/pre-school age child. Surrounding the pool are shades covering lounge chairs, picnic tables and gathering areas.
There is a snack bar that serves hot dogs, pizza and a variety of snacks for an extremely reasonable prices.
The extremely reasonable pricing starts at the door. Entrance to the Roanoke Community Pool is free for children 8 and under. 8 through adult pay $2 if a Roanoke resident or $6 if not. Yes, a trip for me and my three boys is a grand total of $6.
The picnic area can be used for parties. I have hosted Reid’s birthday party there for the last two years. I call ahead with a head count, leave a list of attendees at the door and pay $2 per party participant. This year I had a local pizza place deliver right to the pool – CHEAP, EASY & FUN.
This is Rhett’s favorite area. He just likes to chill out while sitting on a dinosaur.
